    I personally use Osmacote  It is a tiny pellet and slow relese. Workes great for most any kind of plant. Get it at wal-mart, or k-mart or Target garden center

  • Osmocote works good. Also you could get Jobe fertilizer spikes and push them into the dirt and each time you water it will release some fertilizer into the plant.

  • I like the slow release pellets too. it saves you the worry of remembering to feed for 3 months. i like to mix compost into my potting soil too, and i've found that the moisture lock soil really helps if you're going on vacation or just get really busy sometimes!
